It did. This gorgeous, bare collection found a home in my heart I hadn't realized was vacant. --Harry

— From Harry


Megan Falley's much-anticipated fourth collection of poetry shocks you with its honesty: whether through exacting wit or lush lyrical imagery.

"Falley has turned her personal experiences into public prose, exposing her queerness and the raw chasm between self-confidence and self-doubt. She's dissected moments in her own life that've helped her and her listeners comprehend a woman's existence on Earth." - Boulder Weekly

*National Poetry Slam Finalist
*Pushcart Prize Nominee

It is clear that the author is madly in love, not only with her partner for whom she writes both idiosyncratic and sultry poems for, but in love with language, in love with queerness, in love with the therapeutic process of bankrupting the politics of shame. These poems tackle gun violence, toxic masculinity, LGBTQ* struggles, suicidality, and the oppression of women's bodies, while maintaining a vivid wildness that the tongue aches to speak aloud. Known best for breathtaking last lines and truths that will bowl you over, Drive Here and Devastate Me will "relinquish you from the possibility of meeting who you could have been, and regretting who you became.
